Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

I bought an old shop. Tons of NOS plastic pieces, fork rebuilds, fittings, engine stuff etc AV7 engines out the wazoo

Lots of bins with part numbers on them I have to sort through and figure out what they are.

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

So what are some specialty Motobecane tools I need to know about. I am going to make them because it's what I do but what are some basic life saver ones?

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

Joel, what kind of help are you looking for?

What are you planning for all that stuffs?(edited)

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

You sir are fucked(edited)

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

You lucky/cursed human you! What a haul, I envy you, I don't have the space for such fun...you should be able to make some $ selling parts and get some classics on the road! There is a lot of Motobecane info on the wiki, and get a hold of Rebel Moby, he is in Canada as well, and knows a Ton, (metric) ;) about the marque!

^^^^^ this.....

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

WOAH what a haul. Well done indeed.

Specialty tools - truarc (circlip) pliers for the variator - 24x1.00 and 26x1.00 puller for cam and clutch - french nut driver for fork top fitting - french nut driver for ignition coils on some of the Novi 120x that use the french nut instead of the nylocs on the coils. Get a #72 hose clamp (BG shyter pipe hose clamp at HomeHardware plumbing section) to help hold the flywheel while you remove the Novi nut.

You can PM me a list of item numbers off the baggies to help identify some of the stock in the frenchie little bags.

SO EXCELLENT - just in case any asks - the frenchie bikes commercially imported to CanadaLand were to France domestic specs, so they are all 50km/h (30mph rated) and none of that master switch BS.

I think it's one of the signs of the Apocalypse I'm glad I didn't get involved in this....

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

I noticed some of these bad bois have 90kph speedos, lol. I think one mph bike in the mix.

I plan on fixing and slinging a few try and get a rigid and a softie for free out of the deal. Who knows tho.

Got a VLX?

I actually miss my old one...

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

No VLX I can see.

Anyone have a Luxus Mars? I have about 40 oem stickers for one.

I sorted out the bins sorta, there is still a bin of used stuff and about 15 AV7's of various states of wrecked.

New Tail light brackets in spades

This one is a keeper.

So what is the price of a box full of an engine just Assemble?

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

I haven't seen any crank bearings or piston kits... lots of gaskets though.. cylinder studs, small end bearings... Stubby and long intake manifolds.

All the AV7 are ran, and in various states of ripped apart. so it wouldn't be like a NOS motor..

So I don't think I have enough to have a build your own engine kit here...

I could definitely throw together what should be a runner in parts.

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

Runner box...

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

Nice find! Process of elimination start by throwing away all the Gurtner carcasses !!!

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

I believe the Mars Luxus is a rebadged Solo.

Re: Send Help! I bought the leftovers of a Moby repair shop.

Indeed, it is a rebadged Solo 712
